mp3: A$AP Rocky – Goldie (OSØ Remix)

After his awesome remix of Main Attrakionz’s “Perfect Skies”, Oakland producer OSØ is back with a remix of A$AP Rocky’s lead single “Goldie”.  In Rocky’s typical Houston-influenced style, OSØ gives “Goldie” the chopped and screwed treatment, but also adds a lot more to it.  Adding some 8-bit synth chords and melodies, OSØ manages to turn Rocky’s brag rap anthem into an introspective sounding song, that sounds much more like music you would listen to after a party than during it.  This is also a submission to a remix contest, so make sure to vote for OSØ starting August 29th HERE.
